Default Your favourite ROM for Defy?

I just wondered what your favourite ROM is for Defy?

I am on CM7 Gingerbread at the moment but would like to update. I have the Bayer lens.

Is there anything in particular you'd recommend for running smoothly without too many bugs?

I hear that the newer versions of Android from 4.1.2 and above you don't have to keep re-entering your VPN password and details as it remembers them and reconnects you automatically?

Am I best going for a Jellybean ROM like CM10 CMX, Slimbean or Paranoid Droid? Or are the KitKat versions okay to go to now without many bugs?

Just make a backup and try the latest CM11 ROM.

I never had a serious problem with CM11, and I update regularly. For me, stable for daily usage.

I must have tried at least 30 different roms since I own my defy. The fastest 4.1 one was called NEGAN.
Now, talking about 4.4, my favourite and fastest are Paranoid. Slim kat is awesome but causes too many random reboots

I find the cm7.2 the fastest. But it does tend to get slow after installing no of apps.

i suspect that could be due to memory limitation of the defy. i mean, from cm9 onward you can't even install a full gapps.

I'm still on CM7 with my Defy because I use it on daily basis. Every other ROM is good at first but then they became unbearably slow. @@

With CM11, only after a long time, for me, it starts to be slower. Wiping cache and dalvik solves that problem for me (I update regularly with the latest ROM, so my Defy+ do not get slow).
